SUMTER, S.C. (AP) — A South Carolina woman was found dead in her apartment and police say her 5-year-old daughter is missing.
News outlets report Nevada Lashy Adams has been missing since Monday evening after a relative discovered her mother’s body. Nevada is described as a 4-foot-3, 50-pound girl with braided black hair and colored beads.
Sumter Police say they haven’t determined how 29-year-old Sharee Bradley died. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.
A news release from police says 28-year-old Daunte Maurice Johnson was arrested after he was seen running away from the residence. Police say they aren’t certain what role Johnson’s played in Nevada’s disappearance, if any.
